Welcome!

Thank you for visiting the Sunrise Elementary website!  We are so happy to have you and your students at our school.  My name is Robyn Elswood and I am the principal here at Sunrise.The 2016-2017 school year celebrates my 20th year in education.  Most of that has been in the K-6 setting.  I love working with and supporting elementary students.  They truly are our foundation for a better and brighter future generation. I believe that all students can learn at high levels. Everything we do at Sunrise supports that mission.
My door is always open.  If you have questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me.  I can be reached by phone at 357-7688 or email at relswood@shelleyschools.org

Information for Parents


The concept of MINDSET has proven to be indeed a valuable one to understand so that quite possibly we can work on changing some of those fixed mindsets within our children to GROWTH mindsets.  There are a number of books available through bookstores and of course online. If interested in learning more about growth mindset check out Mindset by Carol Dweck.
